Chemonics seeks CVs from qualified candidates for the anticipated five-year $30-$35 million USAID-funded Resilient Cities Limpopo Activity. 

 

The purpose of this activity is to increase access to safely managed and reliable critical services—namely water, sanitation, and solid waste management— for urban residents in the Limpopo River Basin. The activity will achieve this by partnering with municipalities and entities that are responsible for service delivery, as well as with national governments, to:

 

  • Improve operations and management of water, sanitation, and solid waste services, including natural resource and infrastructure asset management; 

  • Build institutional capacity for cost-effective service delivery, including a national capacity for policy implementation and municipal support, as well as ensuring a focus on gender, equity and social inclusion; 

  • Increase and optimize private sector participation in provision or investment in service delivery and associated infrastructure; and 

  • Improve public financial management for sustainability of service delivery improvements
